Nižňánsky hardly changes STV’s controversial budget and program draft

Štefan Nižňánsky, the general director of public broadcaster Slovak Television (STV), has submitted almost the same budget and program draft as one that was previously rejected by the STV Council, the broadcaster’s supervisory body, the Pravda daily wrote on February 14.

Štefan Nižňánsky, the general director of public broadcaster Slovak Television (STV), has submitted almost the same budget and program draft as one that was previously rejected by the STV Council, the broadcaster’s supervisory body, the Pravda daily wrote on February 14.

Nižňánsky's plans include layoffs, repeats of rerun shows, a significant reduction in the air time of the cultural channel STV2, and a shutdown of sports channel STV3 at the end of February. The broadcaster reportedly has serious financial difficulties, although Nižňánsky has repeatedly refused to admit this in the past.
